A sweet soundboard with quite a lineage just showed up here. This is about all that circulates of this show but what we have from the Fabulous Fox Theatre is awfully good.

Cumberland Blues, Dark Star > Saint Stephen > Mason's Children

The transfer kicks off at the end of Cumberland and unfortunately before we get through Mason's, its over. The Dark Star hits the first lyrics at about 7 min and then gets spacey in a '69-'70 way. A little spooky but not obnoxious and they find their way back to solid ground by the 11 min mark. They come out in a similar fashion as the 2-13 DS and start heading into a Feelin' Groovy jam although it doesn't really materialize like 2-13 however the jamming that follows is still quite interesting with a heavy handed return to the DS theme at about 19 min.

You won't be wasting 30 min listening to this.

Very sweet Larry!

Love the Keith Richardsesque rendition of Mason's Children. This one is in the upper echelon and one of the best all time "partials" we have. A welcomed upgrade!

Back in Sri Lanka today and hoisting an icey cold Lion Lager for you and all the other forumites who commiserated with my lack of access ringing beer for over two weeks!

A Dark Star for the ages and for my money the flag-bearer for all 1970 versions.
